This three-year Ontario College Advanced Diploma program prepares graduates with the knowledge and technical skills required to produce diagnostic images or carry out diagnostic procedures in the role of a medical radiation technologist. Working independently and in collaboration with health care team members, medical radiation technologists analyze a variety of complex diagnostic images to assist physicians in the diagnosis and management of multiple system disorders. Through theoretical courses, simulation, laboratory practice, and extensive clinical experiences students acquire the ability to produce quality images of internal structures of the human body. Students apply health, safety and quality assurance principles while using ionizing radiation in the laboratory and clinical settings. Critical-thinking and problem-solving skills are developed to adapt theoretical knowledge to clinical practice. Students work within an interprofessional health care team to provide safe patient assessment, and the diagnostic and therapeutic skills consistent with best practice standards for medical radiation technology.Request More Information
